Byron Bay to Ballina Charity Walk

You are here

Get active and help out a great local cause with the Byron Bay to Ballina Charity Walk! Supporting the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter, the walk is a fantastic way to see the Byron Bay coastline while raising funds for an essential and important service.

Winding its way along the beautiful Byron coastline from Denning Park in Byron Bay, the walk passes by awe-inspiring coastal scenery, providing the perfect motivation to continue on to the finish line. Consisting of three routes that make their way south towards Ballina, the walk covers a range of terrains including sand, bush tracks and sealed roads. Take on the 12 km route that ends at Broken Head Reserve, the 24km path that will lead you to Lennox Head Surf Life Saving Club or, if you’re feeling adventurous, the 35km walk that takes you all the way to Ballina Surf Life Saving Club.

Held on Sunday the 31st of May in 2015, the charity walk offers the opportunity to either enter individually or as a member of a team of anywhere between 4 and 20 members. The walk from Byron Bay to Ballina can be enjoyed at any speed, be it quickly or at a leisurely pace, and is open to participants as young as 12 years who are accompanied by a paying adult.

Importantly, all of the money raised by the Byron Bay to Ballina Charity Walk stays in the region, going directly to the Northern Regional Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter service to ensure that the area’s residents and visitors can receive the help that they need when they require it most.

Get a team together, set yourself a challenge, or make the most of the Byron region’s natural beauty while helping to ensure the continuation of an important local organisation!
